What Ten Hag said on Rashford

Ten Hag, speaking ahead of the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Nottingham Forest reiterated his desire for the 25 year old to stay at the club, as quoted by Metro UK.

The club triggered an option to extend his contract by one-year last year and talks continue over a new long-term contract as reported by Manchester Evening News, as he was already attracting interest from a European heavyweight.

As reported by Guardian, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi made a public statement affirming the club's interest in the England international and would be pleased to have him for free if he does not extend his contract.
